Although it's quite far from the city center of Yokohama, it's a wonderful and open spot
4.0 of 5 bubblesMay 2021
本牧埠頭にある、展望施設を兼ねた船舶通航信号所です。横浜市街地や中華街から離れている上、鉄道は通っておらずバスも1時間に2本程度であるため、休日でも観光客はあまり訪れません。喧騒を避け、東京湾の海風を感じながら伸び伸びと過ごすのにちょうどいいスポットと言えます。 有料なのは駐車場のみで、展望施設を含む全ての施設が無料で利用できますが、駐車場は朝9:30から利用可能です(季節によって終了時刻が異なります)。本牧海釣り施設のゲートを通過する必要があるため、終了時刻を過ぎるとゲートから車を出せなくなるのに注意が必要です。 タワーの前には芝生広場(一部立ち入り禁止)があり、利用者は昼寝したりボール遊びをしたりなど思い思いにひと時を過ごしています。一部はドッグランになっており、各種イベントに使用されることがあります。タワー内を含め、基本的に管理人が常駐していませんので、立ち入り禁止区域に落し物等をすると取り戻せない可能性が高いことに注意が必要です。 ややアクセスに難があることを除けば、利用者も多くなく開放的で素晴らしい場所だと思います。 This is a ship traffic signal station located at Honmoku Wharf, which also serves as an observation facility. It's far from Yokohama central city and Chinatown, and there are no railroads and only two buses per hour. So not many tourists come here even on holidays. It's a good spot to avoid the hustle and bustle of the city, and to relax and enjoy the sea breeze of Tokyo Bay. The only charge is for parking. All facilities, including the observation deck, are free of charge, but the parking lot is open from 9:30 am in the morning (closing time varies depending on the season). Note that you need to pass through the gate of the Honmoku Sea Fishing Facility, so you will not be able to leave your car through the gate after the closing time. In front of the tower, there is a grassy area (part of which is off-limits) where visitors can take a nap or play ball. A part of it is used as a dog run, and is sometimes used for various events. There is no janitor stationed in the park, including inside the tower, so if you lose something in the restricted area, there is a high possibility that you'ill not be able to get it back. Aside from the fact that it is somewhat difficult to get to, I think it is a great, open place with not many people using it.

A white tower in Honmokufuto, you can view Yokohama Port from the observatory. There is a parkland around it which serves as a recreation area for citizens. Visible from afar.
